In 2018 we celebrate the 65th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation. Princess Elizabeth was born on April 21, 1926 and was just ten years old when she unexpectedly became heir presumptive to the throne.
When the King's health began to deteriorate in 1951, the young princess readily assumed many of her father, King George VI's, responsibilities. With her father's passing in 1952, Princess Elizabeth went into mourning and then acceded to the throne at the relatively young age of twenty-six on June 2, 1953. By this time she was a seasoned public figure, her years of service a strong indicator of what the Commonwealth could expect of its new queen.Today about 128 million people live in the 16 countries of which she is head of state. In her glittering Coronation portrait, Elizabeth wears the Imperial State Crown. She holds the Royal regalia incorporating the Sovereigns scepter-with-cross, representing temporal power, and the Sovereigns orb, symbolizing the Monarch's role as Defender of the Faith and Supreme Governor of the Church of England. On her right hand, Her Majesty wears the Coronation ring and on both wrists are golden armills.
